Tuscany in One Day Sightseeing Tour from Rome

Tuscany in One Day Sightseeing Tour from Rome

Board your luxury coach, and travel from Rome to Tuscany with its scenic, rolling hills. Your first stop is Montepulciano, a town renowned for its fine wine and views. The Renaissance hilltown is best-known for its production of Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, a full-bodied red wine. Learn about it on a walking tour, and discover highlights such as the Florence-style clock tower, the cathedral with its yet-to-be-finished façade, medieval wine cellars and the old town walls.

After a break for photos, travel further into Tuscany to explore the area around Montalcino. Step inside Sant’ Antimo Abbey, whose stone walls resonate with Gregorian chants, and then soak up the vistas that stretch beyond the vineyards.

Hear how the local vineyards produce the acclaimed Brunello di Montepulciano wine, and then sample a glass for yourself over a 3-course lunch at a local farm. In traditional Tuscan style, the menu features fresh farm-grown produce as well as a selection of local wine.

From the farm, travel on to Pienza, one of the region’s UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Here, enjoy up to 45 minutes of free time to explore. The layout of the town was created by Pope Pius II, who wanted to change the look of his birth town. Admire the historic center, which stays true to the pope’s vision, and gaze at the fine architecture that abounds. If you are a fan of food, check the shops for pecorino cheese, arguably Pienza’s most prized product.

Your day trip finishes with your coach journey back from Tuscany to Rome.

Nice adventure in the middle of our stay in Rome. We ahd a chance to see the countryside of Italy, nice places in Tuscany - in the region we have read or seen in films so much. We liked all little towns, walking through them, wine tasting and calm lunch in the wineyards. Special thenks to our guide Kylie, who shared her excellent knowledge of history of Italy, Rome and arts. Both guides - Kylie and Becky did really very well caring form the groups, giving much additional information about places in Rome to visit, to find real Tiramisu, about shopping, about using and understanding the language and body language in italy!

I cannot tell you enough how AMAZING this tour was. This was by far my favorite day of my 8 day stay in Italy. I am really not a history person but I have to tell you I was extremely interested in history having Kaily as our tour guide. She is absolutely wonderful, extremely knowledgeable and makes you always wanting to know more about every piece of history around you. My mother and I lovedddd this tour and having Kaily made it that much better. Visiting the vineyard was fabulous with great options for wine tasting and such hospitality by the staff offering us a delicious meal. I would HIGHLY recommend this tour for all.
